Makeup and Essentials For Your Holiday

Makeup essentials for your holiday

The holiday season is officially upon us and it has been a while since we have all been on holiday. It’s been so long that we have forgotten the essentials that we need to take.

We need our bikinis and summer dresses. However, there are plenty of cosmetics that we need to take on our summer holidays. So here is a quick list of all the makeup and essentials you need to take with you. 


Sunscreen is an absolute must when it comes to going abroad. Especially if you are from a country that does not have much sunlight. We all need protection from the sun at the end of the day. Even if you are used to the sun in your home country. Aftersun is something else that you need to add to your essential cosmetic bag. 

The last thing you want when you’re on holiday is sunburn. It just ruins everything. It puts you in a bad mood and an awful lot of pain. If you burn quite easily then you will need to take sunscreen which is a high SPF factor. The majority of sunscreen brands go up to 50, which is the most protection. The lower the number you go, the less protection you will get. Depending on how well your skin reacts to the sun, it is up to you which one you want. 

Waterproof Mascara

This is a must-buy for your travel bag. You will sweat when you are abroad because of the hot temperatures. Not to mention you will be having a few dips in the pool. This is why waterproof mascara is a must-buy for your travel bag. Just remember not to forget to have a good makeup remover that works on your waterproof mascara. 

Day and Night Lip Gloss

Different lip gloss for different times of day is another must-have for the travel bag. You are one of those people that love to do daily activities throughout the day. You must have a different lip gloss from what you wear at night. Especially if you are a night owl. Choose the medium-toned lip glosses that go well with your skin. As well as making sure it works for the daytime activities that you will be doing. 

Eyeshadow Palette

There are many essential makeup products that you will need when it comes to your holiday. It all just depends on how much you can fit/ are allowed to take on the plane. One of the must-have items that you need to take abroad is an eyeshadow palette

Some people take multiple pots of eyeshadows on holiday. Other people just take one palette. To make life easier for yourself, just take one palette that has multiple shades to make packing far easier. One thing that you cannot forget is to make sure you pick summer colours. You do not want to be picking dark colours for your holiday. Pick colours that match the sun. 

Hair Styling Product

You could bring all sorts of hair products that make your hair look beautiful. There are plenty of gels, creams, sprays, foams that you can choose from for your holiday. One thing that you must do is take into consideration how hot it will be. The humidity levels are something that should also be considered. You only need one at the end of the day. 

Detangling Hairbrush

Another essential for your holiday is a detangling hairbrush. Your hair goes through a lot when you’re away, so it is important that you give it some TLC. After being in the pool, at the beach or in the sun all day, your hair will be very weak. So, give your hair a very gentle brush before you go in the shower. Then, use the brush to distribute conditioner throughout your hair. 

This will help you get back silky smooth hair whilst also limiting damage. If you go at your hair with a really harsh hairbrush, it is likely more damage will be caused. So, invest in a gentle detangling hairbrush for your holiday! 

An Organised Makeup Bag

When we’re going away, many of us simply throw all of our makeup into one bag and it is always a nightmare trying to find what we are looking for each time we do our makeup on holiday. So, make sure that you invest in an organised travel makeup bag for your cosmetic products. You can get compact bags that have neat compartments to make your life much easier without taking up loads of space. 

There will be a space for your brushes, your face products, eye products, lip products and much more! You will save lots of time to make getting ready a much more enjoyable process! Including your favourite highlight to keep your skin glowing throughout your holiday. 

Essential makeup products for your holiday


There are many things that you need to remember when you are going abroad. You need your toothpaste and their cleaning products. You could take the risk of getting it when you land. These products are a must-have for the suitcase so make sure you choose wisely.
